Re: Birth control??
The best form of birth control is the one that works best for you. There's no one right answer for every woman.
Any form of hormonal contraception (pill, patch, ring, inplantable, injectable, Mirena IUD) has the potential to negatively impact your supply. Certain forms are more likely to have negative impacts than others. The regular estrogen-progesterone combination pill is most likely to have a negative impact. But even the progesterone-only mini-pill, which is often advertised as being totally safe for breastfeeding, has the potential to impact supply. You don't know if or how hormonal contraception will impact you unless you try it out. Therefore, if you choose to use hormonal contraception, it's important to choose something that is easily and rapidly reversible, just in case it has bad effects on supply. So you want to avoid implantable and injectable contraceptives.
I suggest looking into barrier methods (condoms, diaphragm, cervical cap, sponge) and also the ParaGard IUD, which is non-hormonal.
